ORLANDO 49

49 people at the Pulse Night Club in Orlando, Florida, were killed in a mass shooting and 53 were reported as injured. 

In the days following the attack, artist James Nocito began drawing portraits of those whose lives were taken.  “It was a way of privately working through the sadness, anger and helplessness I was feeling,” said Nocito.  The result was “Orlando 49,” a traveling memorial commemorating the 49 men and women who were killed.  It has been shown in San Diego, California; Hattiesburg, Mississippi; Kansas City, Kansas; Salt Lake City, Utah; Norwalk, Connecticut; and now, Akron, Ohio.

In addition to the art, three survivors from the Pulse Nightclub shooting are participating in the March for Equality.   The survivors will address the crowd from the main stage and have a presence at the ORLANDO tent located at center of Festival footprint.
